2 April is World Autism Awareness Day.

Here's a BBC interview from 17 Feb 2014 with Raj Singh Tattal who has Asperger's syndrome, and how it fuels his artistic passion. Beautiful work!

At the age of 38, artist Raj Singh Tattal was unemployed and depressed. Then he received a diagnosis of Asperger's Syndrome and everything changed.

Singh Tattal - also known as the "Pen-Tacular-Artist" now finally understands his obsessive tendency to draw pictures for hours on end. It is a common symptom of the autism spectrum disorder.

He has learned to let the condition drive his creativity, and this year he has four exhibitions lined up in his hometown, London.

In an interview with Ouch, Singh Tattal talks about his obsessions, support networks and being part of the Sikh community.
